LEWISBURG, Pa. — A group of civil and environmental engineering students at Bucknell University will present the results of their semester project developing conceptual designs for Pennsylvania's new "Hometown Streets" program.
The presentation, to be held Tuesday, May 4, at 7 p.m. in the Brynwood Meeting Room on Sixth Street in Lewisburg, will explore possible alternative designs to enhance Market Street as a focal point of the community.
Topics of discussion at the forum will include ways to improve pedestrian safety, promote the local economy, and enhance attractiveness, while maintaining Lewisburg's unique historical appeal.
As stakeholders in the local community, the public is welcome to attend the meeting to comment and give suggestions to supplement the proposals.
According to Richard McGinnis, professor of civil and environmental engineering, the student recommendations will be followed by time for open discussion, questions, comments, and suggestions from the public.
